Cameron Romero to make Night of the Living Dead prequel



In 1968, George Romero created a film called “Night of the Living Dead.” A simple, yet terrifying story about a group of people who are trying to survive the night against a monster nobody had ever seen before. This 95 minute indie film would catapult a new monster into pop culture history and make them one of the most feared and popular creatures in cinema and pop culture.

Now, almost 50 years later the Legacy continues. George Cameron Romero has taken it upon himself to carry on the Legacy that his father created... the definitive Origin story of a legend as told by a legacy.

G. Cameron Romeo is announcing now his film "Origins", which will be be partially produced by his Father - The creator of the Modern Zombie. 

Origins is the story in the Romero universe of how the first 'Zombie' strolled across that cemetery and into lives of those in the 'dead' series almost fifty years later. This is a project that will re-define the genre… as well as the monster and everything that scares you about them.

Origins takes place in the Turmoil of the 1960's just shortly before "Night of the Living Dead", and explains how The 'Original' Romero Zombie was created.
In 1962, Dr. Ryan Cartwright was on the scientific and altruistic path to find a way for humans to sustain life in the event of M.A.D (Mutual Assured Destruction), a huge topic brought on by the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Little did he know that over the course of the next several years of his life, he would take a well-funded and military focused journey to the darkest corners of the world…  as he creates the ultimate weapon for the government and a curse that will plague mankind for the rest of days.
